Associate Director of Programs

Malcolm Torrejón Chu


Malcolm was born and bred in Brooklyn, NY and now finds himself in Boston. Malcolm’s early exposure to gentrification in Brooklyn, and to the fight for community control of community space and housing as a human right came while volunteering with the Fifth Avenue Committee as a teenager on their Eviction Free Zone campaign. Later, Malcolm got schooled as an organizer with Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude in Springfield, Massachusetts, where he spent 7 years as the lead organizer building a grassroots, people of color and resident-led movement against displacement and foreclosure. Malcolm was a member of the Homes For All organizing committee for 3 years before joining the RTTC staff in 2016 as a communications strategist and organizer. He’s a new papa, hip-hop head, enjoys dancing salsa, cooking, biking, hiking, talking visionary strategy and would rather spend the day on the beach than any where else.
